I admit I'm lazy which is why I don't feel like looking thru 89,047 posts to find an answer. I had to do clean install of Win XP Pro on an older PC. My CDs for Win98, Win95, Win 3.11 are long gone. Am I royally screwed since the copy of XP is the upgrade version, which requires the old OS cd first??
